Underseeded:

I consider these teams ‘underseeded’ in that I expect that they will perform better than their seed indicates in the NCAA tournament. This has less to do with their overall resume and more to do with how well they have been playing recently.

Overseeded:

Note that I consider these teams ‘overseeded’ in terms of how I expect the to perform in the tournament. This is not a reflection of their resumes per se, though in some cases that became relevant.
