The 2017 Southland projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2017 Southland Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the Southland tournament.

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

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