B/F is a great to look at this situation. My first thought was to put yourself IP more often since its where you are most comfortable betting these tough Rivers. Of course you cant always do that and need to try to play well from every position. Another way to get more value if you are uncomfortable on the River is to bet more on Flop and Turn so the pot is 'big enough' going into the River that you wont feel shorted if it checks through.
Another way to do this would be to check through more Turns OOP and then bet out on River even if its a scare card. Every time you give an opponent a free card doesn't mean you missed out on value and there is something to be said for pot control if you are in an uncomfortable position or the board is a bit scary. I see TONS of Turns get checked through in tournament hand histories, but that doesn't necessarily make it a good play for cash 'most of the time'.
Regulars will pick up any pattern you present to them, so mix things up. Betting out is the only way to get value. Once you feel comfortable betting out, then all you have to do is start to regulate your bet sizing to get the max call from weaker holdings. GL
