***Note: The three division winners automatically make the playoffs and secure the top three seeds. The next three teams make the playoffs based on their overall record. If there is a tie, a team will be chosen based on a head-to-head game from earlier in the year. If the two teams that are tied did not play each other earlier in the season, division and then conference record will break the tie.
