I'm not familiar with BPI either. Checked out ESPN and here is their summary of how its calculated:
"BPI accounts for game-by-game efficiency, strength of schedule, pace, days of rest, game location and preseason expectations."
You could be onto something with our preseason expectations.
I think it's a mix of that and your net rating is still a negative, which would project some clutch luck/variance. BPI and 538 give lesser playoff chances and both use preseason as a factor. Teamrankings is a little better. BBR a little better than that.
