The later you get in the hand and the more you know about your opponent's hand, the more value you get on your bets. On the river, for example, if you know your opponent's hole, you get 100% value since you can bet when you're ahead and if he calls your EV of betting is +bet. The earlier you are in the hand, the less ROI you get on your bets, because 1) a lot of cards can come that beat you, and 2) his hand range is wider, including hands that beat you. What this means is, you want to try to put in more money later when his hand is better defined and you know that the board hasn't come to beat you.
