A team's relative odds to win the 2017 Ivy League Tournament depend only partly on their Ivy bracket seed. Winning the Ivy League Tournament also depends on the dynamics of the 2017 Ivy bracket. In some cases, the team with a better Ivy League Tournament seed may actually face a harder path to the Ivy League Tournament championship than a team with a worse Ivy tournament seed.

In addition, because Ivy tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Ivy conference games, Ivy 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 Ivy bracket can have better odds to win the 2017 Ivy League Tournament than lower seeded teams in the Ivy bracket.
