A team's relative odds to win the 2015 MEAC Tournament depend only partly on their MEAC bracket seed. Winning the MEAC Tournament also depends on the dynamics of the 2015 MEAC bracket. In some cases, the team with a better MEAC Tournament seed may actually face a harder path to the MEAC Tournament championship than a team with a worse MEAC tournament seed.

In addition, because MEAC tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in MEAC conference games, MEAC 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 MEAC bracket can have better odds to win the 2015 MEAC Tournament than lower seeded teams in the MEAC bracket.
