XC would be a better line?

It happened in 5NLz. No information about the vilain.

I think, in the button the vilain, can call me with [22-JJ, A2s-AQs, ATo-AQo, K7s-KQs, Q7s-QJs, J7s-JTs, T7s-T9s, 97s-98s, 87s, KJo, KQo, QJo]

In the flop, I decide to bet cause I have the Range advantage, backdoor straight, and flushdraw. I think he calls or fold with all Aces, Kings, other things like Two Pair, Sets, or Draws he would raise me.
Turn, i decide to go X/F . He X behind.

And here I start to think he could be called the flop with some flushdraws too, and missed. With this in mind, I tried to bet to win some folds of his Aces. But i get nervous and bet to small, in my opinion.

Reviewing this, I think the best option, would be X|C RIver vs a bet of 30% or less. If there's something you think made very wrong, please say it [rs]

    I don't think a river bet of that size is much good. If V missed a one-card FD, you have them beat anyway and they'll fold to your bet. If they have an A, they're not folding to a small bet. I'm wondering if a better line here includes a turn overbet?
