I think you have enough equity that the hand is worth a raise. The question is when is the best time to do it.
The normal answer is *now*. Waiting is dangerous because SB is likely to get two callers and decide not to bet anymore. Then I wind up never getting to raise. Even worse, SB may bet good hands and check bad ones. Now I only get to raise when I am losing
For this hand I am making an opponent-specific assumption (based on OP) that SB will nearly always continuation bet the turn. That allows me to make the exploitative play of going for a double-size raise on the turn.
Pot size does not affect this argument very much. If the pot were small enough we wouldn't be worth a raise at all. Otherwise pot size matters only if it affects the way my opponents play. Which is a question with no obvious answer.
