Peat moss? Pro and cons?

The day has arrived and seed is going down. Backyard is dirt. Should or shouldn't I spread peat moss over the seed? The backyard is south facing and gets full sun 90% if the day. Also how much coverage does one of those bales provide?

Planted Yukon. Just finished spreading the peat. I planted based on the weather this coming week plus looking back when I did the front yard last year I did a small 5x5 area in the back on March 31 2017 and it was covered by mid May. My soil temps the past 3 days in the back have been hitting 70 due to the southern exposure.
Thanks. I'm looking forward to this. Meanwhile the wife is looking at new houses.
