A team's relative odds to win the 2018 NEC Tournament depend only partly on their Northeast bracket seed. Winning the NEC Tournament also depends on the dynamics of the 2018 Northeast bracket. In some cases, the team with a better NEC Tournament seed may actually face a harder path to the NEC Tournament championship than a team with a worse Northeast tournament seed.
In addition, because Northeast tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Northeast conference games, Northeast 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 Northeast bracket can have better odds to win the 2018 NEC Tournament than lower seeded teams in the Northeast bracket.
