Open wounds has the negative effect of slowing down hitpoint recovery. Hence it's not as valuable. Curing only has positive effects and is thus worth more.

Just to clarify you get the experience when you cast the spell for the first time, not when you learn it. Also, higher level spells are worth more than lower ones.

Also since you're at 100% saving throw, things like confusion, blindness and stunning should only happen in melee. Another reason to try to fight things at a distance using OoD and archery.
