connect breaker to outlet circuit or junction box


Hello i just connected my new 15 amp breaker. Was just wondering if it is better to connect the romex diretly to my outlet circuit of 8 outlets, or should i have a junction box first. I already have all my 8 outlets connected to each other, so i don't know what is better to connect the breaker to my first outlet directly, or have a junstion box between the first outlet and my breaker. Does it make a differenc, if so what? Help Thanks..

Directly to the outlet. Less splices, less to go bad.
