Using SPG AMEX at Marriott property

I have a questiin if it makes sense to use my SPG AMEX at Marriott rather than my Marriott Visa.

Using my Marriott Visa I get 5x points for every dollar spent at Marriott, using my SPG AMEX I earn 2x points per dollar, and if I wanted could then transfer those (in lots of 1000) at 3x rate therefore earning 6x Marriott points per dollar.

Similarly 2x per dollar at restaurants with the Marriott Visa could be 3x if I used the SPG card and transferred.

Is there any drawback I am not seeing here to doing this?
