To wheat straw or not to wheat straw

I am fixing to redo my yard in bermuda next week and I'm thinking about not wheat strawing my yard and just keep it water. I am tilling it around 4" and then running the power rack over to get it smooth. I have been told all kind of ways to wheat straw and then from other people not to wheat straw the yard. So I'm asking the pros their opinion.

As long as it is sterilized, then you would be OK.

If it's just general straw, then you run the risk of having weed seed in the straw and getting into your lawn.

If you are going to keep it watered then you'll be OK. Water once heavy, then do a light watering once in the morning and once in the evening. Once you get germination, just water in the morning, a little heavier and less often.
