If you do secure the 2nd best record, you will get a bye. I thought my league was the other way but when it is factoring who gets in, it complies both divisions...for example...
My league was 12 teams and 4 made the show, with my team being the only one who made it out of my division. Now watch the tiebreakers though too because that was another thing that can really affect who gets in.
If you end up in a tie for 2nd, based on what the LM chose for the seed tie-breaker, the priority changes with each selection.
If he picks...
Head-to-Head as the tiebreaker...the order after goes Total Points For, Division Record, Total Points Against.
(Intra) Division = H2H, TP For, TP Against.
Total Points For = H2H, Division, TP Against.
Total Points Against = H2H, TP For, Division.
