A team's relative odds to win the 2016 OVC Tournament depend only partly on their Ohio Valley bracket seed. Winning the OVC Tournament also depends on the dynamics of the 2016 Ohio Valley bracket. In some cases, the team with a better OVC Tournament seed may actually face a harder path to the OVC Tournament championship than a team with a worse Ohio Valley tournament seed.

In addition, because Ohio Valley tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Ohio Valley conference games, Ohio Valley 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 Ohio Valley bracket can have better odds to win the 2016 OVC Tournament than lower seeded teams in the Ohio Valley bracket.
