Guessing the Banzuke is guessing what a small set of people decide in compromises with each other, which is quite different than predicting the results of 60+ basketball games (I don't know how many, but aren't there play-in games so there's more than 63?) involving hundreds of people who are competing. It's also impossible to guess the probabilities of either except in the absolute worst case scenario where you know nothing about the relative likelihoods of each outcome. In such a situation, the Banzuke is actually much harder to guess (42! ~= 10^51, 2^63 ~= 10^19), but there is quite a lot that is absolutely impossible in Banzuke making, while nothing is impossible for basketball games.
