Is it better to spawn your first overlord at 9 or 10 supply?

As Zerg, I can make an overlord after my 9th drone or after my 10th. If I make it after the 10th, I can build an extrator, a 11th drone then cancel the extractor.

Does anyone have concrete facts comparing the 2 strategies? Is one better than the other? It doesn't have to be a large gap, just "This one is better by X minerals".

See this answer.

In short, 11OL is worse by 1 or 4 minerals at the 2:15 marker, depending on how you do the extractor trick.
