The 8 on a bite takes more rope, but its easier to untie if loaded.

an over hand on a bit take less rope to tie but it harder to untie when loaded.

the 8 is preferred most of the time, but if you are running short on cord than an over hand is fine to use.

For a sport route you most likely will not have an issue with the amount of rope needed for an anchor. but with trad and ice where the anchor points (cracks) can be different distances apart and using trees if can use up your cord length pretty fast.
