I say it as bio (rhymes with Ohio) pic. That seems to be the standard dictionary pronunciation as well, which makes sense, since it's shorthand for "biographical picture," and "bio" by itself is always pronounced with a long o (no one says "I got a C in Bi-uh" or "I just read a really good bi-ah"). 

If I heard someone say it in a way that rhymed with myopic (bi-OP-ic?), I would honestly have no clue what that meant. I would assume it had something to do with vision, combining BI with OPIC.
