Here's the sentence I'm wrestling with: "Chances are most of your customers are..." Is this correct? Or should it be "Chances are that most of your customers..." or "Chances are, most of your customers are..."?

Your first sentence has at least two words elided, as is usual in everyday colloquial speech. For anything more formal they ought to be included.

[The] chances are [that] most of your customers are...
