In general if the opponent holds the midpoint like this and I have to choose between the 5pt anchor and the bar point anchor, I would break the 5pt anchor. It keeps more pressure on the midpoint and since we have the stronger board I don't think it's particularly risky to break the 5pt anchor.
I don't like 8/1 because White has a spare to play and we may roll something awkward next time. So I'd play 20/15 and then I'm not sure between 20/18 and 8/6. My first instinct was 20/18 but leaving the blot on the 8pt could be costly. I'll try 20/18 anyway but won't be surprised if 8/6 is better.
