One approach would be the following:
Try putting all your math expressions in separate <math display="inline">'s,
all of them inside of some appropriate block element and separated by
commas, words, whatever; do whatever you need to get centering.
This should get everything back onto a single line.

Then, wrap the contents of each <math> with <mstyle displaystyle="true">
so that the math will all be displaystyle again.
