Oh, wow, didn't see that the BB called. This kinda makes things worse for us, since we have to beat two players, and one of them is likely to have a pretty big hand.
Well, our opponents have a range, so sure draws are part of it, but there's a lot of made hands in there as well.
Monsters - 77, 7x, 44
1 Pair hands - 55-66, 88-JJ, maybe some slowplayed QQ+
Good draws - 65, flush draws.
Bluffs/Weak draws - Overcards, 86, 53, 45, A4.
Since he's check/raising two players, the odds
of him having a pure bluff go down pretty significantly. So I'd lean more towards one of our opponent's having a legitimate hand.
When I originally wrote my post I thought it was just you, heads up on the flop. In that case, there are a lot of bluffs in our opponent's range, and we want to get value from those by calling and letting him fire another barrel. We also gain equity against the draws. If we shove and get called by an ace high flush draw, we're not really all that far ahead. But if we put all the money in on the turn when the flush draw misses, we gain a lot of equity against our opponent.
But as played, since our opponent is raising two players, its kinda ugly. I'd probably just fold.
