Those spreads have never been equal. Don't know why, don't care. You get an order of magnitude more bang for the buck on the SPX, so worrying about a doubling, proportionately, in the spreads is just being cheap.
Or, you get what you pay for. As always.
*PS: ES options, for whatever reason, seem to allow for getting filled very favorably at weird, random times and places. I haven't tried to systematize that, but maybe, if you're really worried about those spreads, you might try that. Worth a shot. And they trade 23 out of 24 hours of the day. That can be quite an advantage sometimes.
