Stocks A / Axos Financial (was BOFI)

I am curious on the recommendations for Naked Puts. When the recommendation for BOFI came out, it talked about selling a June 85 PUT for $2.10 with a margin/risk of approximately $8290. For the same margin risk, you could do 20 Put Credit Spread June 85/80 with a potential profit of 1400 and the same risk. I understand that one difference is that on the Naked Put the end game if the stock goes down is to take assignment and then trade this as a long term trade. But it seems like a Credit Spread would be a higher profit plan, with no more actual risk.

What are others thoughts.
