NL 25 - HU combo draw with range disadvantage

Blinds: $0.10/$0.25 (2 Players) BB: $25.00
SB: $25.35 (Hero)
Preflop ($0.35) Hero is SB with 8 A
BB raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.50
Flop ($1.50) T K J
Hero checks, BB bets $1.00, Hero raises to $3.57

Villain is a reg that I don't see from months so stats could be unreliable, anyway that's doesn't matter since my question is a theoretical one.

Having just called preflop we are capped, so we don't have any set and the nut straight, probably the only really strong hand we can have here is Q9s. We can also have 2p sometimes but that's it.
Villain has a clear range advantage here, he can have all my nutted hands, along with the nut straight and sets.

If I just call my hand is pretty much what it is, a draw... the strongest hand want to raise this flop, so when I hit the flush or the straight, my hand will be so face up that I don't expect great implied odds, well, I don't expect to gain a single dime when I hit.

What's the correct way to think about the hand?
