- Monday's college basketball slate is a small one, but it's anchored by a huge matchup between No. 10 Baylor and No. 20 Texas.
- Other than Baylor vs. Texas, it's unlikely that tonight's slate will attract a big betting handle.
- However, there are still plenty of games landing one-sided public betting action, including a massively-lopsided underdog.

The overall handle may not be anything to write home about, but there still are some big public sides on Monday.
