It's not odd at all. This is a completely standard line for JT to bet for value/protect its hand from 17 possible outs on the river. Unless, I was against a huge aggrodonk, I'd lead a straight here on the turn pretty much always.Back to what to do on the hand, it's pretty simple. Just call. If you raise, you might get him to fold a low straight once in a blue moon, but most of the time, you'll just be turning a profitable situation (huge drawing hand in position able to get the made hand to make a river mistake) into an unprofitable one (all-in with 38% equity). Take advantage of your position, go for value when you hit and go for a bluff on a river 7.
Lady luck's my fuck-buddy.
