Overhand on a bight vs 8 on a bight for power point.

Is there a compelling reason to use an eight on a bight for a power point instead of an overhand on a bight? I've often seen both mentioned with the eight seemingly the preferred knot.

Example: You climb a sport pitch and reach a 2 bolt anchor. Using the rope, you clove into the first bolt. With the now slack side of the rope you tie an eight on a bight for a power point and another for the second bolt.
