Well, I am probably a bit too biased to make a conclusion, but here it is for what's worth it. I have WavPack vs FLAC too if anyone is interested.

It was done for about 1 hour and a half so I can't guarantee the calculations either I am pretty much just posting it for reference until someone comes up with a reliable one.

Edit: for typos and minor table fixes
