The upside about topping the eliminations is paving the way for a smooth ride to the Finals. TNT only needs to beat either Alaska or Barako Bulls, arguably the easier opponents in the semis compared to B-Meg or BGK. The only teams I really see having a shot at beating TNT is any of the SMC teams, and two will fall by the wayside when the Finals come.
The dream of a lot of fans (and PBA officials) is to see a TNT-BGK finals to emerge. But this will also be TNT's most feared opponent of all. B-Meg is actually stronger but BGK's crowd factor will definitely be defeaning and can tilt the odds to their favor tremendously.
