This looks like a tough choice, I'd love to hit loose and play 13/7 but then if hit back we don't have a follow up 6 from the roof to continue the attack.

However, there's so much fire power if we do hit and get missed. 65 makes our 2 pt, 61 covers the 4 pt. Many rolls will attack nicely if White simple enters one checker on the 5 pt.

But making the 5 pt looks great also and leaves us 27 rolls that can go after the 4 pt next turn assuming White hasn't made it. It also leaves us a 4 pt board and plenty of play when White anchors.

My style would make the 5 pt here, but I often see that when the opp has nothing a better style with this much fire power is to just attack.
