Free drop after you won the opening move

I assumed that if you win an opening roll and have a free drop, then you should drop if your opening move results in a negative equity. This is what happened today in my practice match with XG:
White is Player 2
5 point match pip: 167
Blue is Player 1
XGID=-b----E-CA--eD---c-e---AA-:0:0:-1:00:4:1:0:5:10 Blue on roll, cube action?

Does dead cube ownership mitigate the slightly negative equity of my opening move? Are there any guidelines which opening moves (if any) are drops? Does it depend on the actual match score?
