      The reason depends very much on the situation.
      In general there are reasons like pot control, board texture, drawing, very aggressiv opponents or check downs for ICM reasons.

      Good points, here is an example, I have QQ, I raise 1 player calls
      flop 3 7 10, I bet he calls, turn a 10
      I check he shoves all in
      I call he has 66,
      it's hard to get value from worst hands on that turn card but with anything he called on that flop he is certainly gonna bet the turn.
