\\[spacing] works also in math mode, so you can use \\[3pt] or
something like that.

amsmath's multline environment by default has the first line
left-aligned, the last flush right and the middle ones centered. Not
what you need, but you can use \shoveright to make the ones in the
middle right-aligned.

There might be a better solution, tough.
