Miles from credit card spend don't make it to your account until the billing period closes.

115K award - you will get the 10K back, but you can't have just 105 and do it.
If it's 115k roundtrip, OP could book the outbound for 57.5k, get 5750 miles back, then book the inbound as separate itineraries.

This idea sounds like the way to go!

Another solution: ORD-MKE on AA is 67 flight miles!
