Line check, flopping top-two on a draw heavy board.

So I have a general sort of line question. A few times in my last couple of sessions I have flopped top-two pair on reasonably draw heavy boards, with three or four people in the hand (the times I can clearly recall I have had KQ on a KQ, rag, with or without a two-suit). My default here, as with most big hands on draw heavy boards, is too fast play, which generally means raising when lead into. The few times I have encountered this situation where I made a reasonable raise (e.g. Making it 125 when someone leads for 35 into a 75 pot and there is s caller in between) everyone folds. I wonder if, as a default, this is an overplay or I am just running into nity players/people at the bottom of their ranges. Thanks again for your feedback folks.

    That is a reasonable play. You are probably running into straight draws, weak flush draws and Top Pair/mediocre kicker hands. I would rather raise here for value than let any of the 9 flush cards or 6 straightening cards come off on the turn for free. I would probably be making 140-150 ish, which should only be about 2/3 pot.
