A World Cup Hypothetical on Team Form

Team A cruises (easily) to the final of your standard knockout world cup (of any sport).

Team B struggles desperately in every match but always find a way to scrape through eventually to the final.

Based on your experience of watching sport, assuming the tournament was correctly seeded and every one given the same rest etc, and perhaps assuming both teams are evenly matched as the top two seeds, who is more likely to win the grand final, A or B?

(You could easily apply this question to an individual sport such as Tennis - in the context of a Grand Slam for example)
