There is no expectation that the funds invested to pay the mortgage will have a higher return than the mortgage interest. Paying off the mortgage improves your cash flow. If after paying off the mortgage you are no longer itemizing, you might even gain additional tax advantage.

I can't see any reason that you would not pay off your mortgage.
