      I'd either c-bet slightly smaller on the flop to leave myself room to fold later, or not c-bet at all. MP1 probably has some pocket pair with which he'll either check it down when he whiffed or felt it when he hit a set, and BB looks bad enough to show up with a wide variety of Ax hands which he'll probably bet if given the choice, while he'll often just check back everything else.

      So I think that by checking we gather a lot of information about villains ranges and we can play much better, especially since the value in a c-bet is rather thin to begin with, it's quite hard for them to show up with a naked Jx hand or to call a c-bet on that board with a naked pocket pair.

      Hope it helps.
