AK post flop

I don't have too much info on villains.
CO has VPIP of 37 over 17 hands.
BB has VPIP of 25 over 56 hands

Preflop is standard. First real decision is whether to bet or check the flop.
I am in position over both villains so perhaps that is a reason to check this more often than betting.
But betting lets me rep something big and there are a lot of good turn and river overcards to barrel on if I miss plus I have overcards
What do people like to do on the flop? Bet or check with our show down value?

What do people think I should be doing on the turn? Its a dry board. Will villain call with worse?

By the river I'm really confused. I am getting such good odds to call though.

Looking back over this hand I feel the flop bet is OK to do sometimes and the turn bet was bad. What do you think?

Re: AK post flop

I think the bet on the flop is ok, you're going to be so value heavy here so c-betting a hand like AK with backdoor flush and straights will help you out. When he calls the flop he'll mostly have some middling pairs and rarely AQ or AJ with the heart. On the turn betting makes your hand look like exactly what it is. The only hands you have that are liking the turn enough to bet are, AA, KK, or AK, maybe AQ,KQ of hearts; so by betting now you're closer towards the bottom of your range from here on out. On a blank river and a donk shove it isn't looking very good. Again, his range is something like all the middle pairs (77-JJ) and occassionally some hearts. He's going to have some sets that just want to lead the river as to not miss value, maybe some weirdly played Aces but not very likely, his pairs like 99,TT,JJ are going to check hoping for showdown. Really there aren't enough bluffs for you to call even though its so cheap, really what hands would shove after you've bet so strong on every street? Our opponent should have almost no fold equity and is still shoving. Maybe you've seen him spazz out with like Tens in this spot before and it was an easy call but in a vacuum I'd fold.

TLDR; It's a fold for me
