Redistribute OSPF to BGP?

In my scenario below, I have OSPF running between the wan router and the core switches. I will have bgp running between the mpls ce and the wan router. I am planning to configure BGP as below. But I just wonder if it is better to redistribute OSPF in BGP. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

- WAN router routes:
router ospf 1
network 10.10.0.0 0.0.255.255 area 0

router bgp 65001    ! THIS IS WHAT I WAS PLANNING TO CONFIGURE
 no synchronization
 network 10.10.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0
 redistribute connected
 neighbor 10.10.30.9 remote-as 65010
 no auto-summary

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.30.9
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.30.13 250


- Core switches routes:
router ospf 1
network 10.10.0.0 0.0.255.255 area 0

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.30.5

Since you only have one outside connection, there's nothing to be gained by redistributing OSPF into BGP. That would be useful with two (or more) outside connections so that if one path were lost, the other could be used.

But with just one EBGP peer, there's no need. In fact, with just one EBGP peer, there's not much use in running BGP at all.
