The 2016 CAA projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2016 CAA Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the CAA tournament.
A team's relative odds to win the 2016 CAA Championship depend only partly on their CAA bracket seed. Winning the CAA Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2016 CAA bracket. In some cases, the team with a better CAA Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the CAA Championship championship than a team with a worse CAA tournament seed.
In addition, because CAA tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in CAA conference games, CAA tournament seeds are not always the most accurate measure of a team's true performance level. This is another reason why higher seeded teams in the CAA bracket can have better odds to win the 2016 CAA Championship than lower seeded teams in the CAA bracket.
