While that seems like the smart thing to do, that probably wasn't Sidious' plan.

Early on in the war, the Separatists were heavily advantaged. They had numbers and good commanders to lead them, so Sidious basically ordered them into a suicidal offensive at Kamino to kill off the best Separatist commanders early on to prevent them from gaining an edge. The only reason the ambush at Coruscant (a desperate ploy in and of itself) worked was because Sidious deliberately drew the Republic fleets off into the Outer Rim Sieges.

I think that the CIS was always intended to lose, and Sidious made certain of it all along.
