This is a very weak thought process. It might not win every time, but I can't believe that we should be afraid to bet 2 pair for value here. It might be thin against a good player, because hero's line is suspicious. That will cut down on the number of hands that will pay you off, and obviously you're going to lose money when you're raised by a good player here.
Basically that's because I don't think check/call with a set on the turn is going to be a very common line. It's strange and I've got to think it's bad unless you have some way of knowing this guy is not going to give up once you've given up the initiative.
That being said, against average opponents, I would think you're fine with betting for value because they will check behind a lot of stuff they could end up clicking call with.
At the end of the day, though... this is a cash game hand. If it was a tournament, maybe you wouldn't want to risk your stack on a non-nut hand... depending on the circumstances... But that is because in a tournament, chips you lose are more valuable than chips you win. In a cash game, every dollar is worth the same.
