BTN: 111 BB (VPIP: 14.29, PFR: 11.90, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 43)
SB: 101.5 BB (VPIP: 18.75, PFR: 18.75, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 16)
Hero (BB): 108.5 BB
UTG: 68.5 BB
MP: 224 BB (VPIP: 75.00, PFR: 50.00, 3Bet Preflop: 25.00, Hands: 8)
CO: 79.5 BB (VPIP: 35.00, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 21)

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has :TD: :8D:

UTG raises to 3 BB, MP calls 3 BB, fold, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, Hero calls 2 BB

Flop: (12.5 BB, 4 players) :3S: :6D: :7D:
Hero checks, UTG bets 5 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 18 BB, UTG calls 13 BB

What goes into the decision making between leading flop and check-raising it?
I never really know how to judge which choice is preferrable. Can someone help me out and point out things to consider?

With this particular check-raise I got a pot-sized bet left on the turn as a result of villain's smaller-than-usual stack. That should probably be one thing to consider.

    This is what I got:
    - If we bet we don't generally exercise as much fold equity. Better flush draws will call as well as all overpairs. These have a harder time continuing when I check-raise.
    - If it checks around I will have the information that probably no-one either has an overpair or set, yielding me more fold equity on the turn than I would have on the flop
