The proverbial rock and hard place. Take one good shot at this pot, then check it down.
Least that is how I like to think I'd play it, but the personnel at the table may dictate something totally different.
On the flop only 2 specific hands beat you, and one of them, 7-3, is highly unlikely. The 78 is a limpers fave type hand, so it is worth assigning some possibility to villain holding that, but personally I would at best only assign it like 30%, but again, what has your villains range been?
