The 2022 WAC projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2022 WAC Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the WAC tournament.

A team's relative odds to win the 2022 WAC Tournament depend only partly on their WAC bracket seed. Winning the WAC Tournament also depends on the dynamics of the 2022 WAC bracket. In some cases, the team with a better WAC Tournament seed may actually face a harder path to the WAC Tournament championship than a team with a worse WAC tournament seed.

In addition, because WAC tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in WAC conference games, WAC 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 WAC bracket can have better odds to win the 2022 WAC Tournament than lower seeded teams in the WAC bracket.
