They'll pop at the same time. I've done comparisons time and time again.

All pros and cons considered - germinating in a baggy saves 'heat' space. Sprouted plants do not necessarily need the 80-85F. 70-75F (warm room temperature) is fine for growing. Either method, after sprouting requires the same 'light' space.

I'd rather save my space, time, labor and mix for sprouted seeds rather than do all the work up front with unproven seeds and hope for the best.
IMO, +1 for baggy germination.
