is British Avios more valuable than AA or United miles?

i have advantage account with 225k miles and united with 55k miles and have 80k chase UR points.

In regards to booking flights, specially domestic, is British Avios more valuable or better than advantage or united miles?

For example, if I book domestic round trip with AA or united miles on or, the miles saver is 25k miles plus $5 fee. But if I book same domestic round trip on BA site, it is 15K Avios plus $5. I just did a test booking chicago to ny roundtrip on BA site and it shows only 15k avios which is just 15k AA miles? 50k chase UR point is 50k british Avios? that is 3 round trips and 5k avios still left on BA site?
if i do it on aa or it is only 2 round trips. I don't have any BA avios or BA card but I can use my Advantage miles on BA site and use just 15k miles for domestic round trip VS doing it directly at which costs 25k miles?

Should I transfer my chase UR points to BA and not United?
