The 2018 SEC projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2018 SEC Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the SEC tournament.
A team's relative odds to win the 2018 SEC Tournament depend only partly on their SEC bracket seed. Winning the SEC Tournament also depends on the dynamics of the 2018 SEC bracket. In some cases, the team with a better SEC Tournament seed may actually face a harder path to the SEC Tournament championship than a team with a worse SEC tournament seed.
In addition, because SEC tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in SEC conference games, SEC 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 SEC bracket can have better odds to win the 2018 SEC Tournament than lower seeded teams in the SEC bracket.
