Should I Stay (Marriott) or Should I Go (SPG)?

I currently have 109 nights for 2016, with only 8 completed thus far against the fall mega bonus.  I have another 12 scheduled to get me to 20 and a whopping total of 20,000 mega bonus points.   That said, I have LTP status, and don't need nights for qualification or extra rollover.  Given the platinum status match at SPG, and that they are offering 2x points for weeknight stays (minimum of 2 nights) through mid-December (a promotion I just registered for), I am thinking I should reserve 10 of those nights at SPG properties.  I don't think there is any chance of me getting bumped up to PP status...  I would be earning points as a Platinum at Starwood, double up on them with the promotion, and then triple them again by moving them back to Marrriott.  Is this correct?  Wouldn't I be better off in terms of maximizing my points earnings?  Am I missing something in my thinking?  Just want to check with my fellow Insiders before I wander off the beaten path.
