      I think b/f turn is a little better, since then you also protecting against flushdraw if he happens to have Ax of spades and you can control the bet size, like betting 12$, maybe even less, rather than calling river potsize bet or 15$.
      Pot control is fine against spazzy players who would bet always after you check to them on the turn. This way you get more value for 8x, which migth have folded on the turn
